In The Memory Of A Man - Poem by Mariam de Haan

For a man who showed Africa
Is not one with ignorance.

A man who shared the truth.
A man who respected heritage.

Rest in peace,
To a man who took the laments of his nation
And wrote them for the world to see.

Chinua Achebe,
May your name be written in Africa's soil,
Where you now sleep.
